Founder Michelle began with a Scooby-Doo-shaped pan and 3-year-old patron, a humble operation that has since grown to proffer specialty cakes, desserts, and deli fare to customers from around Evansville and Mount Vernon. Lunch patrons delight in the reuben’s distinctively punchy sauerkraut and savory corned beef, served with chips and a crisp pickle ($6.45). Snack-inclined guests indulge in giant gooey cinnamon rolls ($2) and moist, bite-sized cake balls ($8.50/dozen; prices vary by design), which curb the shame and discomfort that follow eating an entire cake. Dessert pervades the atmosphere at Michelle’s Icing on the Cake, thickening the air and triggering a precipitation of brownie sundaes that mix smooth, rich ice cream with dolloped droplets of peanut butter and drizzled chocolate ($3.50). Michelle’s original passion for fresh-baked creations remains a consistent theme that unifies her imaginative cakes ($27. 50/8 in, $38.00/10 in), well-suited to birthday parties, bridal showers, and temporary driving permit-issuance celebrations.

Founded in 1954 by James McLamore and David Edgerton, Burger King rapidly expanded from humble beginnings as a lone burger joint to more than 12,400 locations across 79 countries today, making it the second-largest fast-food-hamburger chain in the world. Its signature burger?the Whopper sandwich?consists of flame-broiled, quarter-pound beef patties crowned with a miniature fedora and a fully customizable array of toppings such as tomatoes, onions, and dill pickles. Focused on continual improvement, the chain recently reinvented the fries that accompany each value meal, outfitting the spud slices with a thicker cut of potato for a fluffier texture on the inside and crispier golden-brown exterior. A spread of decadent desserts including dutch apple pie and Hershey pie keeps sweet teeth from elongating into fangs, and made-to-order breakfast sandwiches clasp eggs, american cheese, and bacon, sausage, or ham between two halves of a flaky croissant to round out the speedy menu.

At Lebanon's community-centric DQ Grill & Chill, the signature Blizzard attracts a loyal following with its mingling of classic candies and other toppings blended with ice cream. The friendly, family-run staff loads real fruit into premium fruit smoothies and piles scrumptious toppings and confections onto soft-serve Royal treat sundaes. An array of predecorated cakes is encapsulated within the in-store freezer case, and DQ staffers can also design custom slogans for cakes, such as ?Happy Birthday!? or "No Pets Allowed." In addition to its diverse population of creamy desserts, several of which are dairy-free, the treatery doles out savory bites such as chicken-strip baskets and hamburgers.
